Make old things new again! Twig & Tale patterns pair wonderfully with recycled fabrics. Look to accidentally shrunken sweaters, suiting weight wool skirts or trousers and leather/corduroy garments for inspiration.

Très facile à faire. Le patron se suit facilement pour des francais.

Love them!

Love the versatility and the ease of the pattern. Made a bunch! Thanks!

Really cute and pretty good directions

I made two pair of these (so far) for a friend expecting twins, they are so cute I can't stand it! I like that all the raw edges are enclosed in the shoe but I feel the directions could be improved on the adding of the patches on the faces. I figured mine out but for less experienced sewists, this could be challenging.

If you want to see pics of mine and my full review you can see it here:


Good easy to follow instructions. The end result is a bit big for the size measured... and if using wool as the outer layer do not use them at the back of the shoes as it resists the elastic too much and wont hold the foot in.

Easy cute pattern

Super easy to sew clear excellent instructions and best of all the actually stay on baby's foot!! will be making lots more.

Suggested fabrics

Exterior:  This pattern is suitable for most light-to-medium weight woven fabrics.  Quilting cotton, linen and wool blends are my favourites.
Lining: Lightweight cotton.
Soles: Corduroy, denim, or similar sturdy fabric.  For shoes intended for a walking baby, please be aware that fabric soles can be slippery, so applying a non-slip treatment is recommended.
Ears:  A non-fray fabric (felt, fleece, suede, leather) is recommended so that you can use a single layer. 

These little shoes can be also be made from upcycled materials such as felted lightweight woolen jumpers, embroidered linens, woolen blankets (for the larger sizes in particular), vintage sheets and many articles of clothing with meaning, such as Daddy’s favourite shirt or Grandma’s dress.
